lounge needs to be on the new shadows! I absolutely loved Lounge when I first saw Urban Decay. I remember wanting it so badly, and finally was able to get it after my birthday. I was soooo upset that the new formula sets don't have lounge! I definitely think it's a color that needs to be kept around. May 9, 2012
Long Lasting - Beautiful Color - In love with Midnight Cowgirl Exceptionally long lasting shimmer, and with out being overboard on sparkle - it lasts all day. Easily blends well, and is fine without being to thin. One thing I really dislike in many eye shadows is the thick texture of the shadow that doesn't blend well and is hard to get off even with good makeup remover. You do not have this problem here, it blends, it stays it isn't cake like or too powdery - it has all the perfect elements for an amazing eye shadow that a girl must have. Along with all of their eye shadows, Midnight Cowgirl is no exceptions, day or night shade it gives great highlights to the upper brow and lower lid, or as a base to cover dark tired eyes and add brightness to the face. I love love love this product. February 28, 2012
Avoid glitter Love these shadows. However the ones with super chunky glitter make such a mess. It ends up all over face regardless of all precautions. Try to find a similar shade in metallic or pearly sheen instead. For example, skip Midnight Cowboy and go for Sin instead. March 16, 2012
I can't live without these single shadows I wear abc gum and naked everyday, I can NOT explain how incredible these shadows are. The pigmentation is insane, a little goes a long long way wether its matte colors or shimmers. The midnight cowboys are my new favs at the moment they aren't shimmery but have a great touch of glitter and look matte to me, that looks amazing day or night, when I'm in mom mode or out at a club. I recommend them to all my friends, and family. My sisters are converts because of Urban Decays shadow selection. I do wish there were more matte tones in natural colors to choose from February 22, 2012
Some of my favorite shades... I really love Urban Decay's Vintage Shadows. I've been a fan of them & most of their other products, for almost the entire 15 years they've been around. While some of my favorite colors are sadly discontinued (Chains is amazing & Snow is a great highlight color), they still have several of my other favorites in stock. Lounge is an great reddish-brown with green duo-chrome shimmer that goes with so much; it's a basic shade of brown with some umph. X is my absolute favorite shadow of UD shadow, because it is so versatile; it goes with a ton of colors like Last Call, any of the browns (like Lounge, Roach, or Twice Baked), olive green (like Chains or Cobra) , coppers, rusts, & reds. If you you ever get just one UD shadow, get X. April 16, 2012
Most Pigmented Colors! These are the best eye shadows ever hands down. They don't crease, and they stay on all day! I like natural colors so my favorite is Sin, I use it almost every day but its super pigmented and perfect for my skin. Also definitely worth the price! August 15, 2011
Amazing! Sin is my go to shadow, I love how it looks good with everything!!!! I personally don't leave the house with out eyeshadow so as gifts people tend to give me lots of eyeshadow, so I've tried lots of brands. No brand out there compare to urban decay! They are long lasting, good pigment eyeshadow. I get so many compliments on my eyeshadow colors wether people love the glitter or just the color. I will never stop using urban decay eyeshadow !

Amazing Colors, Amazing variety, softest eyeshadows! Two years ago I really got into makeup and when I did I heard a lot about Mac and a few other brands when it came to eyeshadow. What I found was that the best eyeshadow was Urban Decay. They seriously make the softest eyeshadows with some of the most incredible colors. The pigmentation is out of this world and the price may seem high but I don't know how I could ever finish off one of these shadows. You really get a nice large amount of shadow and the packaging is great! I always recommend these to friends. My favorites are woodstock, el dorado and mildew. February 14, 2012
Great eye shadows! These are some of my favorite eye shadows. They're gorgeous, have great color payout, and last a really long time. And you can't beat the sale price, especially because they do click into the new build-your-own palettes. October 4, 2012
Love the build-able quality!! I bought Uzi, Half Baked, and Woodstock while they're on sale and I LOVE LOVE LOVE how it goes on! The thing I love the best is that it can go on as sheer or as intense as you want! I'm seriously in love with Woodstock! August 17, 2012
Best eye shadow EVER, you'll never go back Once you buy this eye shadow you won't buy another brands eye shadow EVER. This was my first product I tried from UD and it wasn't my last. The eye shadow is so creamy and smooth, you only need a little bit to cover your entire eye. Its lasts practically all day, and even after it fades the shimmer stays which keeps your look still looking glamours. If your new to UD products, I'd recommend trying their eye shadows first. There are so many different colors and although it may seem a bit pricey, the amount of eye shadow will last you a very very long time. August 27, 2011
Half-baked: Just found my perfect eyeshadow! I have been searching for my eyeshadow color fora long time (I have pale pale skin, blonde hair and blue eyes) gold is too much, nude is too less. Half baked is the PERFECT eyeshadow!!! It stays all day, is subtle enough for daytime and glamorous enough for night! The only problem I have is it could be a little more shimmery ;) and you have to sweep your brush in the eyeshadow a lot so I think they can lower the price a bit-but otherwise you need to go out and buy this eyeshadow if youre looking for subtle yet glam with a hint of shimmer. Def a must have! February 18, 2012
favorite! I bought 4 colors recently. Chopper is my favorite! It is so pretty and sparkley! X is a such a pretty almost pink highlight shade. I also bought Blaze and Blunt. I feel like the 4 of these go beautifully together. September 20, 2012
Killer eyeshadow in great colors These are the eyeshadows that made me a believer in premium brand cosmetics. Great payoff, beautiful and flattering colors, and cute containers. My personal favorite single color is Free Love because it's a great color by itself or with other shades. It can be part of either a warm neutral eye or a bright and vibrant one. The only catch is that the payoff is so good that you have to be more careful with application than I was used to. August 7, 2012
Let your creativity play! "The colors Duke, the colors!!" Ok I may be showing my age with the old commercial reference, but really the colors are to die for! Plus, they last!! For such little pots the colors last forever! Totally worth every cent!! So rich in color and true to tone, I only use UD eyeshadow. After being spoiled by UD's color choices and how easily they blend, apply and remove I am head over makeup brush in love! I have lost count of how many I own haha and love them each the same! My client love when I pull them out for shoots! Great for every skin type and a pigment to match every skin tone. There are so many looks you can create, your imagination is your only limit. Don't forget to use with UD primer so your look lasts all day and night! March 5, 2013
My FIRST Urban Decay shadow purchase I bought grifter as my first urban decay eyeshadow and I have totally fallen in love with it. I have green eyes and this light purple looks amazing on my lid with a deeper purple in the crease. I absolutely love it. There is a little glitter fall out, but really I think that is to be expected from any glittery eyeshadow. Some glitter does stay on the lid though. Teamed up with urban decay's primer potion it stays my whole day, which starts and 6am and ends at about 1am! With yoga, classes, chasing a 2yr old AND then working a full shift in food service! February 20, 2012
This is the absolute BEST eyeshadow of all time! There is nothing negative to say about Urban Decay's Eyeshadows. Urban Decay has mastered the concept of every aspect of what an eyeshadow should be. These eyeshadows offer a vast range of colors and each color has such an intense pigment no matter how light or dark the color even if you don't use a primer underneath. The color payoff is great for any skin tone! The quality of all of these eyeshadows is OUTSTANDING! They are very easy to use and last all day. I can promise anyone that once they try one of these eyeshadows they will not be disappointed. February 29, 2012
Lovely selection of everyday colours! I own so many UD eyeshadows that just opening my makeup case is an exciting prospect! Everyday is a "What combination will I use today?" type of day. I never get bored of wearing the same old thing because there is such a selection to choose from you should never run out of ideas! I make a point to pick up singles of the eyeshadows I like from the palettes I've missed out on previously. I also love that now I can make my own palettes with the introduction of the 4 slot tins! As you can see from my image I stock up each time I visit the beauty stores! February 7, 2013
Good Value!! Love this sale! I got some similar color eyeshadows, such as X, blunt, and half baked. Fun to play with them! This old version formula has been good enough to me. And it is affordable now~~ September 16, 2012
Best Eyeshadow Ever! I have never found an eyeshadow so worth the money! Every color I've bought and used has been amazing, it lasts all day and I get tons of compliments on it! I am hooked on UD eyeshadow! August 22, 2012
Pure Ecstacy Love these shadows!!! I have tried Ecstacy, Flash, Purple Haze, Psychedelic Sister, and Grifter. I'm big into purples so that's why my color selection is purple based! Flash is my favorite color, such an amazing color. They all have great pigmentation and a little goes a long way. The quality is fantastic also!!! The color selection offered is breath taking and you won't be disappointed! TREAT YO SELF to these amazing shadows. February 28, 2012
These are addictive! I've fallen in love with Urban Decay shadows! I have yet to be disappointed by one (I own over 25 different shades). They all have fantastic pigmentation and they're very soft. Unfortunately I have run into the problem of fall out with a few different shades, but other than that, I have nothing to complain about! :) The range of shades is also a huge plus for me. I'm normally a neutral girl, but I do own some of the more wild colors because they're so unusual. I prefer Urban Decay's eyeshadows over any other brand because they're just that fantastic! February 5, 2012
Hands down, Best Eyeshadow on Earth! i'm an absolute makeup junkie, specifically eyeshadows. i've tried them all, and by far UD's shadows are far ahead of any other. Highly pigmented, lasts FOREVER, every color imaginable, simply GORGEOUS! what they look like in the pan is exactly what they look like on your eyes. you can wear them wet or dry, and they blend wonderfully. i have gotten SO many compliments on my eyes thanks to these shadows. Every time i do, i point the person in UD direction and they become as hooked as i am! Thanks for making my natural beauty even better UD <3 YOU!!!! June 14, 2011
Eyeshadown Shangri- La! After a never ending search for a good shimmer shadown that stayed put and had all day pigment I finally found Vapor and Midnight Cowboy! I used Vapor for a bride and her bride's maids and their eye make- up stayed flawless from "I do" all the way to the last dance! Such a wonderful spectrum of pigments with many different choices! From wild and bright shadows to ligh nude shimmers this eye shadow collection has it all! January 25, 2012
My favorite eyeshadow, BY FAR! As a person with very oily eyelids, I've had terrible problems with my eye makeup smudging, running, and creasing. I've tried other high-end brands of shadow, some even layered over UD Primer Potion, and still, nothing has the staying power of UD shadow. In conjuction with the primer potion, my eyeshadow looks perfect all day, even after hours of sweating in the hot sun! Not to mention the silky-smooth application, great blendability, and huge color selection — I can go as bold or subtle as I want! I own a variety of shades, and my collection just keeps growing. UD eyeshadows are an absolute staple in my day-to-day makeup routine! My only advice would be to see them in person before purchasing, if possible. As with any online retailer, it can be difficult to decipher exactly how any given shade will look once it's on your skin. (Although UD does have a great return policy!) December 11, 2011
Where have you been all of my life? I'm a huge fan of MAC cosmetics, but I often wonder how I could get some of the colors MAC offers in the Urban Decay formula. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love all of the shades UD offers, but any makeup junkie knows, you can never have too much eyeshadow in too many colors. This formula is amazing. It truly is a high pigment shadow that goes on easy and stays on. Blackout is my fave, because when I wear black, (which is ALOT) I want a true black. At the same time it blends like nothing I've ever seen without losing the quality of the color. March 9, 2013
A True Beauty Before Urban Decay's eye shadow found its way accidentally into my life, I had very little confidence in my ability to be pretty. In fact, I was so against make up that I wouldn't even bother to try and learn how to use it. Urban Decay is so easy to use, its ridiculous. The eye shadow is beautiful and makes me want to wear it. It's sleek casing, rock and roll feel, and general attractive shades simply scream modern beauty. It helped me gain the confidence I needed to go out and show people my fun and unique style, using just this eye shadow ! June 30, 2011
Chopper, Flash, Mary Jane, Kiddie Pool- OH MY! LOVELOVELOVELOVE - PURE..TRUE LOVE! I have been buying UD for years upon years...when I first stumbled upon your brand in Sephora I was hooked. From your awesome packaging to your beautiful color pallettes, this product and all your products are completely FAB. I own so many of your shadows I can't even keep track...chopper is my go to for everyday wear, beautiful hints of sparkle and shimmering pigments..it's a must for any collection.. All you shadows blend great and stay on well. You have the best color selection and love the options of matte or more pigment look and mixing them together makes for stunning eyes. Keep doin what you're doin :) I am a huge cosmetics lover and let me just say you're products dominate my sea of makeups. THANKS! July 26, 2011
Can't say enough After owning the Ammo Palette, I was hooked on the UD shadows. I think the only downside to them, for me, are the eyeshadows with chunky glitter in them. Those shadows have too much fallout for me, and the glitter can sometimes overpower the eye look. However, the matte and shimmery shades are gorgeous and extremely well-pigmented. They're easily applied and blended. My highest recommendation for people with light-medium skintones is "Sin" as an overall base or wash of color. It's absolutely beautiful and gives a natural/neutral look a little something extra because of the shimmering sheen. I got a full size of Sin in my December GlamBag as well, so that was very exciting (seeing as how I was almost running out of the Sin in my Ammo Palette). February 4, 2012
Eyeshadows I think that UD has the best eyeshadow out there. It is very pigmented and easy to blend. August 9, 2012
